    Hello Humblebea. It looks like one of the ceanothus family. Lots of information found here:

    It's Ceanothus "Gloire de Versailles", a deciduous variety. I had one in a sunny sheltered spot in my last garden. I did very little, just deadheaded it. Once OH gave it a hard prune and it grew back.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
